A vulnerability was found in the Linux kernel if there is an unlikely memory alloc failure for the secure pool in boot, it can result in wrong pointer access causing kernel panic.
Based on the references, this looks to be in android drivers. Can you confirm the upstream kernel is affected?

Hi Nicholas, we are currently analyzing the issue to see if there's any chance it could affect our kernels. We'll update the bug with the results afterwards.
Andrej, do you know if there was any conclusion on the affected status for affecting mainline kernel?

Hi Salvatore, unfortunately we weren't able to dig into this further because of Christmas. There will be an update to this bug as soon as analysis is done.
